Benjamin Potts, our featured writer, has posted the synopsis and opening bit for this new Star Wars Writing Challenge! Bit #2 is open for submissions until May 11th!
Synopsis: A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away... Peace! After the destruction of the second Death Star, the Galactic Empire falls apart. The victorious Rebel Alliance establishes a new Republic to oversee the newly liberated Han Solo and Leia Organa are wed, and the birth of their son, Ben, is a symbol of hope for the next generation of heroes. An ancient dark-side Force-user, Snoke, targets young Ben in an attempt to use him against the light.
After discovering Snoke's influence over their son, Leia takes Ben against Han's wishes and brings him to her brother Luke's new Jedi Academy. She hopes Luke's training will save Ben, but fears that she may be too late...
